Highway 71 is a real road in Northwest Arkansas.
It's a scenic byway now , but up until the mid 90's it was the main road between Alma and Fayetteville for cars and truckers alike.
58 miles of 2 lane, curved, and twisted mountain highway.
A snake couldn't have designed it better :)
Hundreds of people were killed on that stretch of road before the Interstate was built.
They still come back, as retirees and tourists, to ride the devil and remember.
